We offer free pick-up (at 2:30pm and 7pm) and drop-off (at 10am and 11am) to/from the Greyhound and Ferry terminals. This service needs to be booked 24 hours prior to your arrival/departure. Simply contact us by phone or by email.
From the airport, the shuttle bus company called Con-X-ion will drop you off in front of the Civic Guest House for $10. Their counter is located on the right side of the main exit door near the baggage claim area. Alternatively a taxi will cost you between $20 and $25. Make sure to ask the driver to go via Ingham Road as it makes it a shorter ride.
If you are arriving by car, follow the signs to downtown. Walker Street is one street back from the main street (Sturt Street).
If you are walking from the Greyhound terminal, walk towards town past the ReefHQ Aquarium and follow Flinders Street until you hit Stanley Street. Turn right into Stanley and then left into Walker Street.
Parking on the street in front of the hostel is free from 5pm to 9am on week days and free on weekends. Alternatively there is a free unlimited car park a short 3 minute walk away, which can be used during the day. Simply ask reception upon arrival.
